Baku, November 11, AZERTAC
A 6.9 magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of Chile, some 100 kilometers west of Coquimbo, according to the Russia Today.
The epicenter of the earthquake was located at a depth of just 10 kilometers (6.2 miles), according to the United States Geological Survey, which initially reported it as having a magnitude 6.6.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said that based on all available data they have received, there is no threat of a tsunami.
There were no immediate reports of any injuries or damage having occurred to local buildings. Chile’s Navy confirmed that the parameters of the quake did not suggest a possible threat of a tsunami occurring.
The quake affected the same region as the deadly 8.3-magnitude earthquake in September, which killed at least 15 and forced over one million people to evacuate their homes, triggering tsunami warnings in California and Hawaii.
